Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’m not exactly a fan of this holiday. If you love someone, you should make them feel special and important on every day of the year, not just on Valentine’s Day.
Anyway, Den Mother, one of my beautiful best friends, bought roses for me! They’ve wilted a little since I received them (I was gone all weekend on a retreat with one of my other best friends, so I wasn’t able to photograph the flowers until today), but they’re still wonderful. I really love Den Mother. :)
My mom made some adorable heart-shaped pancakes this morning. :)
For anyone who is sad about being single on Valentine’s Day, remember this:
“Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.” -Song of Songs 2:7
And if that verse doesn’t mean anything to you because you’re not Christian, there are always the wise words of Fall Out Boy, from the song Save Rock and Roll:
“You are what you love, not who loves you.”
Shout out to all the aromantics and asexuals who are confused by this weird, lovey-dovey holiday. You guys are great. :)
I hope everyone has had a good day. If not, just remember: you can start over every morning. You’re going to be OK, even if it takes awhile. Hang in there.
